There are now two parish councillor vacancies that exist for the Quarrington Hill Ward.
Quarrington Hill is not losing out to its due share of service delivery as a result of the vacancies. This is because parish councillors are responsible for the whole of the Parish and not the wards in which they live. However, currently there is no only one councillor out of a possible three that there cab be that has the in depth village knowledge to be able to engage with the Parish Council overall and get village issues raised.
The Parish Council desperately needs members of the public to come forward to be considered for the role of councillor. Find out more on our vacancies on our Opportunites at Coxhoe Parish Council pages.
The Parish Council needs members of the community to come forward to become Parish councillors to serve the Quarrington Hill.
A vacancy that arose at the start of the winter has still not been filled. Now as a result of the resignation of Julie Smith there is now no-one acting as a councillor representing the Quarrington Hill ward.
In respect of the previous vacancy you can find out a little more about how to apply to be a councillor here.
